Ghost Kitchens Acquires Speak Burgers Brand

An Indian cloud kitchen incubator, Ghost Kitchens has acquired Speak Burgers, a gourmet cloud kitchen start-up owned by celebrity chef Vicky Ratnani, for an undisclosed sum.

Ghost Kitchens’ mission and vision are to build a portfolio of upscale food delivery brands that compete with Swiggy and Zomato. Ratnani will join Ghost Kitchens as co-founder and chief culinary officer as part of the agreement.

The company will launch three new brands with Ratnani in the mass premium and cloud kitchen categories.

The partnership will help Ghost Kitchens to scale its offerings and add an additional 400 fulfillment partners over the next three years.

According to CEO and creator Karan Tanna, the purchase will enable Ghost Kitchens to address holes in the market for premium brands. With fulfillment partner programs, Speak Burgers wants to grow to over 200 locations within the next three years.
